    catch point changes...

    I was wondering,

    When I first start out driving my 01 ws6, the catch point will seem closer to the floor, then after about 10 miles or so, it'll be up about half way. I have a new clutch, new master/slave. Could it be i need more fluid?

    I kinda always thought my clutch release was pretty inconsistent also. But also thought that maybe its just me and I needed more practice. But lately I've felt my release was very consistent and predictable. I recently did the 'drill mod'

    i was gonna have the shop do that when they put the cyl. on but they wouldnt. I guess the oil has to heat up to flow better?

    you don't have to ever worry about an Fbody LSx clutch line NOT heating up the way its ran. Line runs right down next to the header.

    Shop sound's like they were scared because maybe they hadn't heard of doing it before.

    Nope...you don't want the clutch fluid to be warn or hot in any case. That is bad and leads to the fluid degrading and/or boiling in the line.

    The issue may be related to the slow engagement of the clutch due to the line restriction. The restriction causes the clutch to engage at a certain rate, regardless of how fast you can release the pedal. This can create a feeling of inconsistant engagement.

    Before I changed my clutch, replaced the hydraulics, and did the drill mods, I always though it was very inconsistant. Now will all new components and the drill mod done, it feels very consistant and predictable.
